Hm, that complicates things slightly.  How easy is it to interface to MySQL through C/C++ (or what else would you recommend that the Gumstix supports)?  Right now, I have a perl script grabbing inputs from a GPS and pressure sensor which then dumps the data into a text file.  I'd actually like it written in realtime to a MySQL database on another machine though.

Thanks,
Karthik

I've not tried but I don't think this will be possible. Microperl is used
in building of Perl during the bootstrap process. It doesn't have support
for the DynaLoader module - which is required for the DBD::mysql driver.
